This tribute was participated in by gentle

The Past and the Future.
The Pittsburgh Journal, of a late date con
tains some interesting facts in relation to the
rapid increase of the population of the United
States, but more particularly in the West
and North West, and the change of political
power which the census of 1860 will develope,
in favor of that portion of the Union. The
fact is stated that though the centre of popu
lation was near Washington city it has since
been gradually, and at a rapid rate, moving
westward nearly on a straight line towards
Council Bluffs, lowa.
.The present centre is
said to be near the south-western corner of
Pennsylvania, and the next will probably be
near Zanesville, Ohio. We suppose that af
ter ten or twenty years more, this line will
run nearly due west, on about the 40th par
allel of latitude. This would carry it near
Springfield, in Illinois, through Northern Mis
souri and Kansas. It is quite apparent that
westward the march of empire takes its way.
If, moreover, a Pacific Railroad should he es
tablished, an extraordinary impulse would
be given to emigration towards the Pacific.
New Territories would be organized, addi
tional States would be called into existence,
and villages, towns and cities would start up
by hundreds, and as if through the agency of
magic. This country is yet in its early
youth. We are not a century old in a na
tional sense ; and judging the future by the
past, what is likely to be our condition a cen
tury hence, or in 1958 ? The imagination
must be bold and daring that would attempt
to foresee or predict. But one melancholy
fact connected with the subject, that the mil
lions who now move upon the face of the re
public will with a few rare exceptions, have
passed to their long resting place. And yet,
how many live as if there were no end to
human existence. Alas ! what shadows we
are, and what shadows we pursue. The very
growth of this republic forms a forcible illus
tration of -the ever-changing character of
men and things.. But the other day, com
paratively speaking, the American Declara
tion of Independence was promulgated to
the world, and now, all the " Signers" sleep
the last long sleep of death, while the scat
tered and sparsely populated colonies which
they organiZed into free and independent
States, have become one of the mightiest na
tions on the face of the earth. Nevertheless
"!passing away" is - Written upon everthing that
is human.
months since, the wife of Jacob Abbott,
living ten Miles west of Golconda, Pope
county, Ohio, presented her husband with
eight pledges of affection at one birth ! Four
of these children survived until some six
wee ks since, when two of them sickened and
died. The remaining two are still living and
thriving finelyy. The whole eight were very
small specimens ,of, humanity when ushered
into the world,.
The Harrisburg Telegraph says that the
Territory of Arizona, which has hitherto en
gaged but little public attention, is likely to
prove as attractive to fortune-hunting emi
grants as California itself, and that, too, at
no distant day. For, according to Lieut.
Mowry, who came passenger by the last over
land mail, there is a marvellously rich gold
region on the river Gila. The worthy Lieu
tenant left two hundred and fifty men there,
all washing or digging for gold. In another
portion of the Territory, there is abundance
of silver, and a company formed there ob
tained one thousand ounces of the pure metal
per week. The embryo Territory is im
mensely rich in . mineral wealth, and will
rapidly fill up and become a State. So we
go. And when Sonora and Chihuahua, both
rich in gold, shall be added to our republican
family, we will be in a condition to supply
mankind with the precious metals, and "offo
diuntur opes" will be the industrial motto of
our - western brethren. It should bore be
mentioned, en passant, that iron, copper, and
lead abound in Arizona, as well as gold and
and silver, but these are regarded as barely
worth notice, when placed along side the
" root of all evil." This, however, is a vile
libel of the ancients on the rich, brilliant,
and shining product of the mines, for it is a
really bountiful source of good, .in deeds of
charity and in encouraging the arts and man
ufactures of a country, when in the hands
of virtuous, liberal, energetic and worthy
men. Success, therefore, to auriferous and
argent Arizona !
To the Teachers of Huntingdon county :
You are respectfully invited to assemble in a
County Institute at Huntingdon, which will
open on Monday the 27 inst., and continue
three days.
In issuing this, my first call for a County
Institute, I am aware of the inconvenience
to you,—the tax upon your time and resources;
but it is sincerely hoped that you will have
nothing to regret in thus assembling to delib
erate upon our educational interests, and
the advancement of our most interesting pro
fessions. The Professional Educator may
now magnify his office, and look forward
with * high hopes, to that just recognition
which its own intrinsic merits will ever claim
for it. He is the master of mind, morals and
learning—the producer of thought—the guar
dian of queries—the benefactor of his race.
If this be true, science, art and discovery
should inspire all his efforts ; and the love of
them should urge him on to the highest en
joyment which his profession can realize.
The activity of genius is unlimited, knowl
edge abounds as an .abundant harvest; and
he who gathers and gives most, wears the
fairest laurels, gains the highest eminence,
and bears the mightiest sceptre. Will our
teachers consider these things—look forward
to the future and then join in the progressive
movement which alone renders the teacher

be present to lecture upon most interesting
subjects. Reports will be read, and laid be
fore the Institute for discussion. Our county
is favored with many good educators, several
of whom have signified their intention to aid
us in this enterprise. I invite you one and
all, my fellow teachers, to come- and make
the cause your own.

Letter from Nebraska Territory.
November 5, 1858.
Mu. LEWIS :—Enclosed you will find a
specimen of Cherry Creek gold, which, being
exhibited to your numerous patrons, may in
duce some of them to seek their fortunes in
the newly discovered gold regions of Kansas
and Nebraska. The specimen was procured
from Capt. Smith, (formerly of Pennsylvania)
who started. for the mines last September,
and has recently returned for provisions and
mining utensils. In a conversation that I
had with him, he told me that miners were
making from four to ten dollars per day, and
that thus far, the labor of the miner has
been more of a prospecting nature than any
thing else. lie also told me that twenty dol
lars per day can be made in the Spring,
which is properly the mining season, and by
that time there_ will be a better supply of
mining tools.
Aurora is the name of a town that has
lately been laid out at the mouth of Cherry
Creek ; it contains at present, about sixty
Flour is brought from Mexico, and sells at
from eight to ten dollars per hundred weight-
The distance from Omaha to the mines by
the North Platte route, is 580 miles. This
is the route that is so highly recommended
by Col. Lander, for the Pacific Railroad. It
is also the road preferred by the great mass
of emigrants, and is spoken of very highly
by those who have traveled it. Persons wish
ing to go to the mines should start early, as
there will be a general " stampede" for the
diggings in the Spring. C. A. S.
From Washington-- : Difficulty between
Congressmen English and Montgomery,
WASHINGTON CITY, Dee. IB.—A difficulty
occured this morning between Congress
men English, of Indiana, and Montgomery,
of Pennsylvania on Pennsylvania, Avenue.
The two members of Congress happened to
meet for the first time this session, when Mr.
English, extending his hand, said, "flow are
you, Mr. Montgomery ?" Mr. Montgomery
withheld his hand and uttered insulting ex
pressions, something like "I don't speak to
puppies ;" whereupon Mr. English 'struck
him a severe blow over the head, breaking
his cane to pieces by the blow, and
knocking him into the gutter, but not entire
ly down. Montgomery, on rising, hurled a
brick at English, striking him on-the boot,
but doing nu injury to him, Mr. English
states to his friends that he was entirely un
armed, and was not aware that Mr. Mont
gomery had any ill-feeling toward him up to
the time of the recontre. Mr. Montgome
ry, _as to strength and size, is superior to Mr.

A caucus is being held to-night of such
members of Congress as are favorable to the

with the view of making such arrangements

HORRIBLE EXECUTION.—The Chinese, among
other unique punishments, sometimes sen
tence a man to be executed by depriving
him of sleep. A recent letter from a Brit
ish resident gives the following account of a
Chinese merchant, who, being convicted of
murdering his wife, was condemned to this
torture :
" The condemned was placed in prison un
der the care of three of the police guard, who
relieved each other every alternate hour,
and who prevented the prisoner from falling
asleep, night or day. He thus lived for nine
teen days without enjoying any sleep. At
the commencement of the eighth day, his suf
ferings wore so intense that he implored the
authorities to grant him the blessed opportu
nity of being strangulated, guillotined, burned
to death, garrotted, shot, quartered, blown up
with gunpowder, or put to death in any con
ceivable way which their humanity or feroci
ty could invent. This will give a slight idea
of the horrors of death from want of sleep.
gregate amount of gold and silver taken from
the mines in different parts of the world an
nually reaches the enormous sum of three hun
dred and ninety-nine millions. It will nat
urally be asked what becomes of this vast
sum. The fact is that since the discovery of
the vast quantities of gold in California and
Australia, the consumption of gold and sil
ver for household purposes has increased in
an equal proportion, and valuable plate in
the houses of those in good circumstances is
now universal in this country. The Scientif
ic American, in giving the yield of these pre
cious-metals from the different sources, says,
that the amount of gold and silver annually
taken from the mines of Europe is valued at
twenty-five millions of dollars. In America,
the yield is computed to be one hundred and
forty-six millions, and Asia produces twenty
five millions. Africa has no silver mines,
but produces gold to the amount of nearly
three millions of dollars. Australia is also
without silver, but produces gold to the large
amount of two hundred millions.
A PI RE SPI TTE R.-A simple old man
named James Nipple, residing near Mifflin
town, Pa., was awakened on the night of the
Bth inst., by a noise in his bed room, and
was no little surprised and alarmed to see a
hideous looking ruffian standing by his bed
side and brandishing a huge club over his
head. He was so frightened' that he lay
speechless, until the ruffian said "If you
don't give me up your money, every cent of
it, I'll spit fire all over your house." The
imminent danger with which his premises
were threatened, restored to him the facul
ty of speech, and he.quicklygasped out, "Oh,
don't burn my house down and I'll give you
all my money!" Mr. N. then got up and
gave him all his money, amounting, it is said,
to between $2OO and $3OO all in gold and sil
ver. In consideration of his kindness, the
ruffian then vamosed, without "spitting fire
all over the house."
A Dispensation from the Pope.
The Washington correspondent of the Bos- .
ton Traveler has the following relating to a
dispensation granted by the Pope through
American official influence :
" While the papers are full of comments
on Gen. Cass' letter of refusal to interfere in
the Mortara, affair, on the ground that 'it is
the setted policy of the United States to ab
stain from all interference in the internal
concerns of other countries,' it may be well
to ventilate' a rumor now current in this
city. It is said that the daughter of a highly
respectable family of this city (in which, by
the way ex-President Pierce was quite inti
mate,) took the veil at the convent in the ad
jacent city of Georgetown, and that after a
while she found the vows distasteful, and that
by the personal, if not official, interference of
President Pierce, Major Lewis Cass, Jr.,
minister near the Court of Rome, was in
duced to interest himself in the matter, and
by his personal intercession with the Pope,
to obtain a dispensation,' which has released
the young nun from her vows, and has al
lowed her to again enter the world. If this
be so, and it has obtained credence among
many, it would appear that 'intervention'
can be practiced whenever there is sufficient
occasion for its exercise."
A NICE WOMAN.—The wife of Morrissey
the prize fighter, who is said to be the daugh
ter of a wealthy man in Troy, N. Y., won
$2OOO on the result of the fight with Heenan,
and his father-in-law won $BO,OOO l A nice
family, take them all around l That a loving
wife might wish her husband to be successful
in what he undertakes in a decent way is per
fectly right and natural, but for to bet on the
success of her husband in brutal and black
guard fights is rather an arrangement of "so
ciety" that we don't understand. Yet we
understand enough to believe that Mrs. Mor
risey in a very fashionable, upheaded and
brainless, "circle," is considered some, if not
more. So wags the world, and the people, it
would seem must wag with it, or be lost in
the "under fog." A woman betting on a
prize fight I Well we give in.
New York city, saw one day, on the side-walk,
a ragged, cold, and hungry little girl, gazing
wistfully at some cake in a shop window.
She stopped, and taking the little one by the
hand, led her into the store, though she was
aware that bread might be better for the child
than cake; yet, desiring to gratify the shiv
ering and forlorn one, she bought and gave
her the cake she wanted. She then took her
to another place where she procured her a
shawl and other - articles of comfort. The
grateful little creature looked the benevolent
lady full in the face, and with artless simplic
ity asked, "Are you God's wife."
SIDE OF Ills BODY.—At Cincinnati, a day or
two ago, a man died, who had been for some
months an inmate of one of the hospitals and
whose disease had exhibited such peculiar
and unknown symptoms as to baffle the great
est skill of the best physicians. Under the
circumstances, it was deemed advisable to
make a post mortem examination, when it
was found that in the diaphragm was a large
hole, and that the intestines had been forced
up and had pressed the heart from its natu
ral position over to the right side of his
body, where it had performed its functions
for several years ; the man himself having
been prevented from his daily labor, only for
the last few months.

Society, to recover $30,000 for legal services
in prosecutnig a claim against the Western

was tried at the late term of the Superior

verdict of only $7,000 in favor of the Judge.

That binds you hero below."

after a brief illness, liesar, son of Dr. Martin Orlady,
aged S years and 5 months.
The subject of this brief notice was one of those singu
larly interesting children, whom to see, is to admire and
love. Polite and manly in his manners, kind and obliging
in his intercourse with his littto companions, he was be
loved and cherished by them.
We loved him because he was never known to indulge
in the rude and violent sports too common, even with
children of his age—and the tender brotherly care which
he manifested towards his little sisters.
His gentle, confiding disposition, combined to make him
a favorite with every one who knew him. lie was a regu
lar attendant upon the German Reformed Sabbath School,
in his native town, and long may it be, when shall fade
from our memories, the beautiful scene presented every
Sabbath morning by Timmy walking with his little sisters
to his seat in the school room. Long will it be ere we
shall look upon that little vacant seat without a feeling
of sadness that ono so young and so noble, should have
been so early called away.
